this is al jazeera live from london coming up. releases a video shows some of. it still holding. it's absolutely diabolical what's going on britain's biggest corporate collapse in a decade why did the government keep giving karelian contracts despite multiple profit warnings. and dramatic images emerge of the moment a floor collapses at indonesia's stock exchange more than seventy people injured. u.s. planned for a thirty thousand strong border security force in northern syria is being rejected by turkey russia and syria itself president says washington is trying to create a terror army and he's pledged to quote drown it before it comes into being the.
10:02 pm
u.s. says the force will secure areas along syria's border to the north with turkey and to the east with iraq it was mostly made up of fighters from the syrian democratic forces about their stiff is led by kurdish fighters that turkey views as allies to the p.k. k. about and kurdish groups active inside turkey syria says the plan is an attack on its sovereignty and russia is describing it as a plot to partition the country from moscow reports. but russia's foreign minister had a stark rebuke for the us on monday speaking as a media conference in moscow a lover of said the creation of his own controlled by u.s. backed rebels risks syria's territorial integrity turkey's president also opposes the plan he's attacking reports of the u.s. backed kurdish border force russia type says turkey will launch its military operation against the kurds in the northern syrian city of a free shot at then this is circling now the united states has confessed that they
10:03 pm
are forming a terror army along our border what we have to do is to strangle this terror army on our borders before it is born. turkey has fought kurdish factions inside its borders for decades and doesn't want to see them gaining more power in neighboring syria bots in northern syria the americans have long been supporting some kurdish forces the kurds are the most effective fighting force against the assad government and against the islamic state in syria and they've been very successful at that that's the american purpose but the turks regard the kurds and the why b.g. as a dire threat they label them terrorists although u.s. president donald trump promised he would stop supporting kurdish fighters the pentagon never made that's official the reported thirty thousand strong u.s. backed border force would primarily come from kurdish led syrian democratic forces and would deploy along the syrian borders with turkey and iraq and along the

euphrates river valley the dividing line with syrian government forces one of the syrian war's detectable trends last year was the emerging axis of cooperation between russia and turkey often joining together to criticize steps taken by the united states while if today's developments around the thing to go by that the trend looks set to continue into two thousand and eighteen where we challenge down to zero moscow when it's costing can we have good news in washington d.c. first secondly the reaction has been quite simply i watch the thinking behind the us me. i reached out to the department of defense to try to get some clarification on the border security force and the u.s. being very matter of fact about it saying that it really is very simple it comes down to trying to preserve gains in the best way that the coalition sees in order
10:05 pm
to achieve that so you have to remember that the kurdish fighters have been instrumental in trying to help secure some of these areas that had previously been controlled by eisel and so this is a sort of a in the eyes of the defense department is really a natural transition because of these thirty thousand that will be making up the recruits to go into the border security force a good fifteen thousand of them kurdish as well as arab fighters have already been working a trying to achieve these gains so these are be the same fighters that now would be working to preserve them so that's the first point the second point is really that the united states understands according to the defense department very clearly the sensitivities they understand the relationship with turkey not wanting to inflame the sensitivities of key u.s. ally so there is that recognition and there is also this perspective that look at this is not about giving preference to any one group the area that the border security force will be for trolling is not in any way going to be any sort of
10:06 pm
defacto border for any sort of new autonomy state what this is about preserving the fragile gains that have been made the kurdish fighters in the eyes of the united states are the only sizable group able to try and achieve that essentially in the eyes of the united states the future of syria and serious peace really rests on this so that is the calculation behind the thinking but of course again we've seen the reaction being interpreted somewhat differently can be how could thank you very much indeed. bickel haram has released a video said to show some of the girls kidnapped from a nigerian tallish nearly four years ago the footage was obtained by a us based journalism website one girl says of our safe and live in comfort and don't want to be rescued twenty three hundred girls were abducted from their school in april twenty fourth team some escaped and others have been released around one
